Catastrophic Injury Cases in Chicago
Learn How Our Chicago Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
Catastrophic injuries, by definition, leave victims dealing with life-altering
trauma that are long-lasting or even permanent. A catastrophic back injury
could lead to paralysis; a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result
in lifelong medical complications. In addition to causing immense pain
and suffering within the sufferer, the families of the victims may find
their lives changed in order to ensure that the injured person is adequately
cared for during this time.
While a serious personal injury takes an immense physical, emotional, and
financial toll, catastrophic injuries can prevent someone from returning
to work or maintaining employment, oftentimes leading to additional distress.
A study conducted by researchers at Harvard University found that more
than half of all consumer bankruptcies are filed by people whose medical
expenses have spiraled out of control after suffering a major illness
or severe injury. Simple costs, such as hospitalization and medication,
can gradually accumulate and eventually leave an accident victim and his
/ her family financially destitute.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
One of the defining characteristics of catastrophic injury is determining

person it affects. If basic and regular activities have become an extreme
burden, you may be suffering from a catastrophic injury.
Common injuries that may be considered "catastrophic" include:
These injuries can have a devastating impact on the lives of accident victims;

them struggling to cope with the aftermath of the incident. If you or

Chicago Injury Lawyer Fights For Your Future
Serious injuries can be emotionally and financially devastating. Beyond
the cost of paying for the treatment you need to recover or even to survive,
you may be facing a future in which you will be unable to earn an income
to support yourself and your family, whether you are partially or totally disabled.
These costs might include:
- Prescription Medication
- Medical Testing
- Physical Therapy
As a result, many people end up wiping out their savings, college funds
for their children, investments and retirement accounts, watching their
dreams for the future evaporate in the face of the costs of everyday living expenses.
A catastrophic injury claim is not only about money; in addition to pursuing
monetary damages for your medical bills and your lost present and future
income, you also have a right to compensation for the pain, suffering
and emotional distress. Your life may never be the same again, but you
may at least be able to receive payment to help offset the considerable
emotional and physical toll inflicted by your injury.
